Squirrel Medicine the Medicine of gathering.
Squirrel… You have gathered Nuts by the score, exactly predicting if you needed more. Teach me to take no more than I need.
Trusting Great Mystery, to harvest the seed.
I was writing this Squirrel Medicine message The Great Spirit wanted to share, I looked outside and grey Squirrel came up to the window looked in, then proceeded to gather the bird seed from below our bird feeder we have hanging.
Our Dog loves to watch Squirrels, so I called her attention to our guest. As she watch the Squirrels every move. It reminded me of what the great Spirit had to say about learning the habits of the creatures the Great Spirit sends to you. Squirrel Medicine is such a lesson.
The Teaching of Squirrel Medicine
Squirrel Medicine teaches us to plan ahead for the winter times when the trees are bare and the nuts have long since disappeared. Squirrel Medicine comes in many forms, as this furry little creature is very diverse in nature.
The erratic behavior of the Squirrel has bested many a forlorn hunter after the Squirrels precious energy. Thus it stands to reason there are benefits in being able to circle a branch at lighting speed.
This erratic behavior of Squirrel can also get very nerve-wracking if one is dealing with persons who have Squirrel Medicine. In fact, trying to clam them down enough to accomplish something may drive one nuts.
The gathering of Squirrel Medicine is a great gift. It teaches one how to gather and store energy for times of need. It also teaches that one should reserve something for the future use, whether it be a judgement, an opinion, a savings account, candles, or extra food and water. To put it another way, in a nut shell, Squirrel is the Boy Scout of the animal kingdom. Always be prepared.
In today’s world of changing times and fortunes, it is the wise person who prepares for the future. As our prophesies have all spoken of the end of the millennium and the changes to come.
Squirrel Medicine is a friendly medicine to have, in the light of possible future rainy days. Be prepare is the message of Squirrel Medicine, however, one doesn’t have to go nuts. Love yourself enough to gather the goods that will meet your needs in times of scarcity, even if that time never comes.
When Squirrel Medicine crosses your path and it will, remember that you are being told to honor your future by readying yourself for the changes ahead now.
The message could be to lighten ones load if one has gathered too many things that no longer serve them. These things can include, but aren’t limited to our thoughts, worries, pressures, stresses, or gadgets that have been broken for years.
In understanding the balance involved in gathering, one may need to look at the idea of recirculating the stock of what one has gathered. Call the nearest thrift store and give the gadgets to someone who can benefit from them. Simply, if something doesn’t grow corn for you. Its time to let it go.
Squirrel Medicine has other lessons which can aid if one will observe what is obvious, and which can prepare one for anything. It has to do with a safe place in which to put your gatherings.
This safe place maybe an untroubled heart and mind. That which is gathered to put in this safe place is wisdom and compassion. The energies gathered will set your mind and heart free, so that one will know that all will be taken care of in its own time. Apply this to ones fears about the future and they will vanish, as you are prepared for the future.
Squirrel Medicine upside down
Contrary Squirrel Medicine
If Squirrel Medicine has come to one hanging upside down on a branch. The lesson is of the Squirrel hoarders. A fearful person who expects the worst and is stuck in waiting. Waiting for something bad to happen? Waiting for something to happen is a trap.
Where non-action equals stagnation. Bat Medicine may help. However, Squirrels erratic energy may just be what’s needed to get things moving again. Squirrel hanging upside down means that Squirrel is seeing the world through opposites, hording ones thoughts of abundance so that the fear of scarcity takes hold.
To reverse this upside down energy ask ones self:
1) Have I denied my ability to produce enough space for abundance in my life?
2) Have I denied my connection to Mother Earth and the Great Spirit, from whom all things flow?
3) In moving too fast, have I taken on the erratic nature of Squirrel without having the focus of Squirrel?
4) Am I leaking my energy on worry instead of gathering power through being prepared?
The Great Spirit adds, remember one of the Squirrel family gathered the energy of the Eagle, and connected with the Great Spirit. Now this Squirrel can fly.
Isn’t Squirrel Medicine amazing. I maybe nuts for sharing this, but somethings you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t.
Thanks for sharing this Animal Medicine. Even this Doowan has things to learn.
Tomorrows a new day and a new Animal Medicine. I can hardly wait to see which animal the Great Spirit sends next.
Knowledge is Power
